[MOUNT PLEASANT] – Put on your shagging shoes and head to the Mount Pleasant Pier! The final Thursday Night Boogie of the season will be held Aug. 13 for ages 21 and up. Then, Shaggin’ on the Cooper, open to all ages, returns Saturday, Aug. 15. These popular live beach music and shag dance event series are held at the Mount Pleasant Pier on select evenings.
Shaggin’ on the Cooper features local bands performing at the end of the Mount Pleasant Pier through September (see schedule below), and the dance floor is open for all ages. Bring a date or meet friends, let loose, breathe in the ocean air and dance the night away. Gates for Shaggin’ on the Cooper open at 7 p.m. and music starts at 8.
A counterpart to the Shaggin’ on the Cooper series, Thursday Night Boogie is intended for adults ages 21 and up and will be held the Thursday prior to each Shaggin’ event, with the final event of the summer held Aug. 13. Also at the Mount Pleasant Pier, Thursday Night Boogie features DJ Jim Bowers as he spins a variety of unforgettable oldies, beach music classics, and line dancing hits.
Best of all, both events are held at the foot of the 1250-foot-long pier next to Memorial Waterfront Park, the perfect spot to catch cool breezes, beautiful scenery, and views of Charleston Harbor and the Ravenel Bridge. Beverages are available for purchase on site, and food is available for sale at the Mount Pleasant Pier’s River Watch Café. Food and beverages are not included in ticket prices.
Tickets for each event are $10 per person ($8 in advance for Charleston County residents). Space is limited, so advance purchase is recommended. To purchase advance tickets or for more information on these events, call 843-795-4386 or visit the link below.
